Thiruvananthapuram: In a major initiative that may revolutionise the general education sector, Kerala is all set to introduce multi-media "Digital Collaborative Textbooks" (DCT), the first of its kind in the country, in government schools.

This digital textbook will comprise information contributed by persons around the globe in audio or video formats, besides the scanned soft-copy of normal textbooks.

The state government has decided to launch the DCTs in government schools on an experimental basis from next academic year starting in June, A. Shahjahan, Secretary, Department of General Education said.

Students and teachers can access the DCTs with the support of tablets and e-learning centres set up at schools.

IT@School, under the state General Education Department, is planning to formally launch the "digital collaborative textbooks" early next month.

"The digital collaborative textbooks is definitely a significant step in the education sector of the country. We are planning to formally launch the DCTs next month," Shahjahan said.

A senior official of IT@School said Kerala is the first state to introduce this kind of multi-media textbooks.

Over 3.7 million students and about more than two lakh teachers in the state-run schools are expected to benefit from the the ambitious project.
